Pressotherapy is a procedure that helps with lymphatic drainage, thereby potentially slimming the look of the arms and legs (because they carry less fluid), easing aches and pains, and detoxifying the body. It uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit that squeezes your arms, legs, or abdomen in a rhythmic motion, similar to a massage.
Pressotherapy stimulates the body’s lymphatic system. When it’s functioning optimally, the lymphatic system transports lymph, a fluid that contains white blood cells to help fight infection. Possible benefits of pressotherapy include:
Pressotherapy is a procedure that can help with lymphatic drainage, potentially making the arms, legs, or abdomen look slimmer or more defined. The treatment may also ease aches and pains, and detoxify the body from a buildup of toxins. It uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit which squeezes targeted areas of the body. It feels like a strong massage and should be a relaxing experience.
Pressotherapy is generally considered safe, however if you’re pregnant or have pre-existing health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, or even a fever, it’s always a good idea to check in with your doctor before doing this treatment.
A trained esthetician will perform the procedure. Pressotherapy is similar to a lymphatic drainage massage, but while massage is performed by hand, pressotherapy is administered by a machine that dispenses the correct amount of pressure every time.
A typical session will last for 30 to 45 minutes. Your body may feel light afterward, and anecdotally, some people feel they have to urinate right away, which could be due to the movement of water in the body. You can get pressotherapy done as often as twice a week.
Pressotherapy is included in all our post-op packages.
